Semester Study Abroad Courses


For each of our semester programmes, there are classes that are mandatory for all students, and these classes will automatically be assigned to you.

For certain programmes, let us know before you arrive which classes you are interested in taking, and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.

See below for the range of courses available.

If you or your home university have any specific requirements about what you need to study while you are in London, please contact us in advance of your arrival.

Hear from some of our Study Abroad lecturers


Students can join the semester programme for credit towards degrees at their home institutions. As a guide, each semester is worth 12 to 16 US credits, depending on the classes taken.

In order for your home institution to award external credit, please read the module descriptions on each programme’s web page before you travel to London, as these will give you and your advisor a clear idea about what you will study while you are here.

Please make sure your home institution will award external credit before you travel to London. The Study Abroad team can provide additional module information on request.


Our semester programmes are perfect for art, design and fashion majors, as well as liberal arts students with some experience in these areas. As most of the teaching on the programme is conducted separately from our full-time students, semester programmes can be shaped according to the needs, interests and requirements of the group with time for more student support and additional elements such as field trips and special events.

A fashion and culture trip to Paris is included in the fees for students enrolled on the London College of Fashion Semester at London College of Fashion. The Paris trip is cancelled for Autumn 2021.

Autumn 2021

If we have to cancel the course our usual Terms and Conditions apply. Please contact us at if you have any queries.
